About MetroHealth Care Partners

A Way to Better Coordinate Your Health Care

MetroHealth providers are participating in MetroHealth Care Partners, our Medicare Shared Savings Program Accountable Care Organization (ACO). An ACO is a group of doctors, hospitals, and health care providers working together with Medicare to give you high quality, more coordinated service and care.

We’re Working to Improve Your Care

By helping your doctors and primary care providers to communicate more closely with your other health care providers, ACOs can deliver high-quality, more coordinated care that meets your individual needs and preferences. ACOs may share in the savings it achieves for the Medicare program when it succeeds in delivering high-quality care and spending health care dollars more wisely.

You Can Still Choose Any Doctor or Hospital

If you are a MetroHealth Care Partners beneficiary, this does not mean your Medicare benefits are changing.  ACOs are not a Medicare Advantage plan, an HMO plan, or an insurance plan of any kind. You still have the right to use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, at any time. Your doctor may recommend that you see particular doctors or providers, but it’s always your choice about what doctors you use or hospitals you visit.
